Uptime and availability are of vital importance to 9-1-1. Understanding the threats and potential hazards targeting a PSAP network is only half the battle. Aligning the technology and infrastructure to support and secure call-handling and Next Generation operational initiatives needs to be considered. But what does that look like?
Hamilton NG911 and APCO International are hosting an in-depth discussion designed to help the emergency service sector better secure their digital operations. Because every second counts, ensuring those seconds are as reliable as possible is vital.
Key talking points include:
- Common network threats
- What 24x7x365 monitoring looks like
- Case studies from the 9-1-1 sector
- Steps ECCs can take to strengthen infrastructure
